'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Keep Up To Date With The ACON



With me probably stuck in bed all week with what I call 'Man Flu' I have nothing to do but watch TV and go on Vital of course. And this week marks the start of the African Cup of Nations, which is being shown on Eurosport and BBC.

So I've decided to keep you all up to date with the goings on. Also how the Pompey Players and other Prem stars are getting on.

Pompey players that are involved are:

Belhadj & Yebda (Algeria)
Dindane (Ivory Coast)
Kanu (Nigeria)

The ACON started last night with a bang when the hosts Angola against Mali.

Angola were 4-0 up with only 11 minutes left. But Mali fought back to snatch a 4-4 draw, which included a goal from former Premiership star Frederic Kanoute.

The Fixtures for today are:

Group A:
Malawi v Algeria. (Currently on as I write this)

Group B:

Ghana v Togo. Called Off (For reasons I'm sure you all know)

Ivory Coast v Burkina Faso,16:00. (With Chelsea's Didier Drogba & Salomon Kalou playing for the Ivory Coast)

Both Games are Live on Eurosport UK.

The online ESPN coverage had a lot of Belhadj and Yebda mentions, all of them failed attacks. Never mind!
